Ringside drama, heavyweight themes. A gut-slamming tale told over the course of ten rounds. Sunny feels alone when he joins the boxing gym. He’s living in a new city. He has no friends. He’s just been hurt in a racist attack. Boxing gives him protection – and lots more. There’s the community vibe of the club, and a trusted mentor in his trainer Shobu. Finally, Sunny is finding a place to belong. But when a Far Right march through Bristol turns violent, Sunny’s new best friend Keir joins the racists. Now they’re facing off in the ring. It’s about more than boxing. Who’ll win this critical fight?
